RDA’s First Community of Practice in Community Review
Last December, RDA announced a new category of groups, "Communities of Practice" (CoP), within its organisation. Complementing the existing RDA Working and Interest group categories, CoPs will provide the opportunity to investigate, discuss, coordinate and provide knowledge and skills within a specific discipline and/or research domain.
Earlier this month, the Agricultural Data Interest Group became the first group to submit a proposal to transition and become the “Improving Global Agricultural Data” Community of Practice. As part of the submission process, their proposal is now in Community Review. Members of the RDA community are encouraged to review the proposal and provide comments before the August 6 deadline.
